The levels can generally described as: (1) A researcher, usually a recent Ph.D. graduate with little or no experience, who has made some expert-reviewed contributions and has sufficient experience to contribute to valued outcomes; (2) A researcher who is recognized by peers as knowledgeable in an area of specialty, either has worked in and led a small project team of scientific/technical personnel or carried out individual in-depth inquiries to support the delivery of valued outcomes; (3) A researcher who is recognized by peers as a national expert in an area of specialty, and has led a team of scientific and technical personnel or carried out in-depth inquiries to successfully deliver on the immediate, or contribute to intermediate and long-term, research goals in a specialty; (4) A researcher who is recognized as an authority in broad areas of specialty and who has strategically conceptualized the course of research activity leading to the achievement of the intermediate, and contributing to the long-term, research goals in a specialty; and, (5) A researcher who is recognized as an authority and visionary in broad areas of specialty who has strategically integrated leading edge scientific and technical objectives into programs, having long-term impact on the future directions of research in a specialty.
